Credit Card/Gift Card Deal at Safeway????

Does anyone know if there is something going on with buying Gift Cards with your Credit Card...i.e. using your Mastercard to buy a Mastercard gift card...AMEX to buy an AMEX gift card, etc, etc

The reason I ask...My hub just came back from Safeway and said the lady in front of him had 4 transactions, each transaction was for 7 each $100 gift cards totaling approx 741.00 or so... each transaction was paid with a credit card of the same type of gift Card...

I'm just wondering if I need to go buy some gift cards, .

That's really strange since it was seperate transactions. Why did it end up over $700 if it was for 7 $100 gift cards? Did she get something back?

Hub said she had 4 transactions each totaling $740 +/-...each transaction was paid using 4 different credit cards that matched the gift card; Amex GC paid with Amex, visa GC paid with visa, and 2 transactions MasterCard GC paid with 2 separate mastercards.

A couple months ago there was an offer if you bought a $500 GC you received $50 cat...which after the activation fee you could net $40 + ...and continue to roll the GC for another GC until you got tired of rolling it ... Lol

I just didn't want to miss something...and yes hub should be in time out for not being nosey like I would have been.

Ct there were 4 transactions each having 7 $100 GC's for each totaling approximately $2900 +

And each GC has it's own activation cost usually between 4.95-8.95 or so

Maybe she is trying to rack up points/rewards on her cards?

zerabero has posted more than 10 good deals
The lady in front of me was getting Visa cards today- and I WAS nosy ... she said it was for her work's holiday raffle, and there was no promo on 'em (she got 3, same Tx, $25, $50 and $100). The cashier didn't know of a promo, either...

I think either points, stolen, or maybe trying to head off the card(s) being declined for potential fraud transactions??

I have personally tried to purchase amex for an amex and the register would not allow it. The cashier said the store does not allow such transactions for cash cards, but I was able to purchase the other cards I was buying on my amex for instance, movie gift cards and gas card. I like to have some cards around for gifts. Just my two cents don't know if that will help.
